Trail projects moving forward in Yakutat

YAKUTAT – The Yakutat Ranger District and City and Borough of Yakutat recently received a grant for trail maintenance.

As part of the planned trail construction on YRD lands, the Rasmuson Foundation awarded $25,000 in July to fund the construction of a parking lot for a trail near Lower Tawah Creek. This project will reduce erosion and improve water quality, and draw the public away from private property. This grant complements an additional $40,000 by Alaska Department of Fish and Game to cover crew time and materials.

These projects will enable a planned AmeriCorps National Civilian Conservation Corps team next summer to do trail restoration, construction, park cleanups, interpretation and outreach, and other projects designed to benefit the community of Yakutat and the Ranger District.

For more information about these projects, contact Joe Edmonds by phone at 907-747-4311, or Teresa Swanson at 907-784-3359, or e-mail josephedmonds@fs.fed.us or taswanson@fs.fed.us.
